Equality and Diversity
Accrington and Rossendale College

Accrington & Rossendale College (accross) is committed to the active pursuit of an equality and diversity policy which addresses the need and right of everyone in College to be treated with respect and dignity, in an environment in which a diversity of backgrounds and experience is valued.

It aims to ensure that all staff and students whether existing or potential receive fair and equal treatment when applying to, or working as members of the College and to counter any attitudes and behaviour which deny opportunities to people simply or primarily because of:

> Age
> Disability
> Gender reassignment
> Marriage and civil partnership
> Pregnancy and maternity
> Race
> Religion or belief (this includes lack of belief)
> Sex
> Sexual Orientation

If you feel you are being discriminated against, talk to someone:

> a tutor/manager
> the student support centre (354038)
> Information+
> complete a complaints form
> a member of the senior management team (354007)

If you feel you are a victim of any form of discrimination we will carry out an investigation.

(We will ensure that our investigation is carried out sensitively).
